I have always thought that designing a blazer would be so ... boring ... All blazers are basically created equally dull.
Except this one.
I am NOT endorsing this. Hells NO. Rather, I am using it as an example of a non-dull blazer, perhaps the brainchild of some notably bored blazer designer who rubbed his hands together in wicked glee and thought, "I will place layers of synthetic dead skin on this scrap of cloth and call it fashion! Offices everywhere will fall victim to a style revolution - a fashion apocalypse, if you will! - when this blazer is presented in our summer '10 line!"
So you can imagine my pallid SHOCK when I clicked on the image, out of sheer curiosity, and found this nice little note from J.Crew: "This item has been very popular and has sold out. Call one of our personal shoppers - they'll work their magic to try and find it for you or add you to a wait list should it come back in stock."
You know what I think? J.Crew bought them all back just to make it look like this odd excuse for fashion actually flew.

Ok so since I mentioned that Angela Adams is one of my favorite designers, I realized that I haven't posted her. Ever. Oh my goodness. And I figured - hey - I have more people ask me where I got my wallet than ask me what my name is, so why not feature it.
So here it is, folks. The one. The only. Wallet. At full price.
Which I got on sale a few seasons ago. Ok so mine is maybe like a tiny bit different, somehow. I just haven't figured out how.

Um. Am I dreaming? Is this a joke? No, I think it is real. That 3 of my favorite designers - Angela Adams, Sea Bags, and J.Crew - came together to make this bag (which is suspiciously ... identical ... to any Sea Bags bag) absolutely makes my day. Well, until I looked at the price. But cheers to those three for coming together, nautical intentions in mind, to create this bag. Cheers, kids. CHEERS.

a worthy weekly indulgence (for those of us obsessed with having the most efficient organizational fix for every organizational issue)
Back when I was a young, budding, organizational OCD freak, I gathered all of my sister's movie ticket stubs and glued them into a journal. She had many, and I was sick of looking at them. She also had no choice in the matter. But wouldn't life have been easier had I had this at my disposal? Why yes, yes it would have.
Happy Friday the 13th, y'all.
Happy Friday the 13th, y'all.

THESE MIGHT AS WELL BE A MILLION DOLLARS, BECAUSE AS IT IS THEY'RE $170 TOO MUCH. Yet I love them. I cannot, for the life of me, find lovely, affordable heels. For some reason, adding 3" of pointy cork to the bottom of a shoe makes them that much more expensive.

No - I am not posting this because I like it. I just have to say - what happened, J.Crew? What is this? Why would anyone pay $15 for a floppy scrap of fabric poorly fashioned into what can only be mistaken as Lady Gaga's used Kleenex?
I just - no. Words just can't. No.

Whoops I fell off the face of the earth.
Anyway, I have been in desperate search for some new heels for work, and I can't find any. And I'm obviously not buying these because I don't even want to think about the number of hours it would take me to work just to cover the blessed shipping on these puppies.
Thanks Kate. You always, without fail, depress me.
